What is PILOT BUSHING Campaing???

Gents,

I took my Benz in for service to my local MB dealer and I was told there's a PILOT BUSHING Campaing that must be done to my car.

What is a PILOT BUSHING ?

For what I understand it is located in tranny.... and they said they had to drop it to get to the PILOT BUSHING... of course I'm not paying a dime for this and btw I'm driving a nice loaner a CLK350 with only 2,000 miles.

It is the bushing that sits in the middle of the flywheel and the transmission prop shaft is supported by that bushing. To change it the transmission has to be pulled so that the bushing can be removed and replaced. Can be done with the engine still in the car.

Makes Sense Buell, they had to do that to mine. In fact they had to drop the tranny (acording to the service advisor). It took them two days to do that work.
